Google Nexus 5 by LG Preview (LG D820)

Recommended Posts

When do you think you will get yours? Keep us updated so that we have an idea how long it will take us late buyers to get the phone!

I ordered mine as soon as the 3-4 weeks came back on for the 16GB. Friday 7:45pm. For a minute it showed November 26th ship date then changed to 3-4 weeks.

I ordered a black 32GB at 6 on Friday night. Got shipping notification this morning at 7, Sunday. Logged into my Sprint account and chatted with support. Pasted the SKU from this thread and got a order confirmation (free) with item number CZ2102LWR.

 

Thought I would let you guys know. So far, so good.

At 6, eh?

 

:unsure:   /looks at my pending/unshipped 1:12 CST order.

 

I wish there was some rhyme or reason to their shipping.

 

Anyway, really looking forward to people here starting to get these things and posting impressions.

Just used the chat to order the SIM, took all of 60 seconds, piece of cake.

...might I ask for you to kindly describe the steps involved?

 

I presume you went to the Sprint chat site mentioned a couple of pages ago.

 

What exactly did you order?

 

How much did it cost?

 

When will it ship?

 

Thanks.

Well for me, I went to the chat and told them I bought a couple of nexus 5's and I needed UICC sims for both devices.  She then asked for my shipping address and that if I wanted it overnighted it will cost $12.95.  The sim's are free.  It will ship today and I should get them tomorrow.

Ok I might have missed this in the talks over the weekend, but will the N5 come out the box tri-band ready unlike some of the other phones that will have to wait on a update?

Please someone more knowledgable correct me, but I believe all of the phones that can access all three bands will be able to as those bands come online.  But I believe the conversation everyone has been having is about "Spark" which if I understand it correctly combines upload and download (not sure about both) across all three bands to increase your speeds.

 

If so the N5 will have to wait for the update.  As I've mentioned before about Nexus updates this will be interesting since Spark is specifically for Sprint and the N5 like "allI***" is supposed to only receives updates from Google not the carrier.  I put asterisk on all because the Galaxy Nexus was treated much differently for Sprint and Verizon than the GSM model for everyone else.  All we can do is wait and see.

 

On a side note.  Once I discovered that the N5 was unlocked I jumped all over that.  Hopefully Sprint will allow Ting to activate it.  If not I'll go to GoPhone or someone else and wait until Ting can activate the phone.  It awesome that we finally have an unlocked phone with all of these radios.

We will have to wait for an update.

I don't think you get it, the carriers have no say in the updates the way this one is set up. Think of it like the iPhone were apple controls the updates.

I do understand but apparently you don't understand what I'm getting at.  And this isn't like Apple.  While Google's Nexus program isn't quite open having quite a bit of proprietary code they do release the basic source to the AOSP repository.  Apple does not.

 

Take the "Nexus" mess that was the Galaxy Nexus for Sprint and Verizon.  Updates, when and if released, were not released at the same time as the other GSM based Nexus phones.  Whether or not the problem was with the carriers themselves or the fact that the Sprint and Verizon phones had LTE radios, which unlike GSM (as I understand it) is a patent encumbered technology.  I'm actually not sure who holds the patents on LTE and/or if each of the US carriers have their own patents.  It's hard to do an open platform like the Nexus program when you have patents flying around.

 

I'm excited about this phone I just tempering my expectations

Mine supposedly will ship the end of this month. 2-3 week wait.  Here's to hoping the times drop for all of us.

I'm on SERO-P, and was directed by chat to call (888) 876-8381 for a SIM card. I'll try that tonight.

It's plain and simple.  The N5 that Sprint users and AT&T users, etc will be using will be the same exact device.  The updates won't go through AT&T or Sprint to sign off on them before the OTA is put on Google's servers.  The companies signed off on the first update and I'm sure there are other provisions in the contract with the company's like hot spot locking down, etc.  I'm not sure why you are getting stuff about patents and such holding up updates for each carrier.  That's not the way it is going to work.  When Google updates to 4.4.1 then the same scaled rollout will happen to all device users.

I've been told by multiple Sprint reps that the 4g should work without the SIM card since the SIM card is just for international service (GSM)... I'm so confused!!
